    No. It's not a problem. It's a practical solution to a personal financial management challenge of maintaining a home in one's home district while having to spend a large part of time in a very expensive area for real estate. Not everyone is married to a Heinz Heiress.

    They are vagrants, kick them out

    No other worker would be allowed to live in their workplace. Zoning would not allow it and they work in a public building

    Let them sleep in homeless shelters

    I'm betting that the group bitching about this is funded by real estate agents with a lot of vacant apartments.
